The final report on human remains at a Florida Panhandle reform school has been issued by the University of South Florida. Nearly 100 boys were known to have died at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, most of them African-American.

Researchers found 51 sets of remains, of which only 13 were in the school cemetery, NPR reported. Many of the remains can’t be identified. Surviving residents say they were viciously mistreated at the school, which closed in 2011.
